WideTEK® and Bookeye® scanners provide captivating images for a German auction house
As one of the leading auction houses for stamps and coins in Europe, based in Oberkirch / Baden, the auction house Götz, is always on the lookout for new, future-oriented products for the graphic design of their auction catalogs. Since Auction House Götz holds international auctions several times a year with several thousand lots each, they say they are open to innovative solutions, which they have found with the Bookeye and WideTEK scanners from Image Access.
According to Auction House Götz, “Since we have high-quality individual stamps and coins at voluminous discounts, we of course need devices that are flexible and at the same time powerful. Here we have designed a combined solution together with Manfred Grandis, Sales Manager of southwest Germany at Image Access.”
“On the one hand, we were given the opportunity to work with one of the first devices of the Bookeye 5 generation, more precisely the Bookeye 5 V3 Professional. This makes it easier for us to produce a large number of images from stamp collections in a very short time and to make them available to our customers online. Especially now, when many customers are staying at home and avoiding travel, it is important to offer them visual details in the form of pictures of stamp and coin collections that encourage purchase and are also decisive for sales.”
The WideTEK 12 flatbed scanner is a dream of every numismatist.
This flatbed scanner offers a 3D mode which Auction House Götz uses to capture realistic images of the coins. Without detailing individual technical details, the result of the reproduction of the coins for the auction catalog and on the Internet is captivating and provides potential customers with a detailed, realistic depiction. For numismatists, the smallest details play a major role. The absolutely precise reproduction of the embossments, scratches or the relief is so realistic that even after a brief familiarization with the WideTEK 12 flatbed scanner, Auction House Götz says they could not to do without this device. They recommend trying it yourself to see the results.
Auction House Götz would like to thank Mr. Grandis, whose patience was instrumental throughout the entire process from the consultation and the introduction of the devices to the regular production of the catalogs today.
